Mladá Boleslav, 7 May 2015 – The new ŠKODA Fabia R5 caused a sensation at
its first ever race. The ŠKODA team brought home a clear victory from the new
model’s world premiere in the Šumava Klatovy Rally. The high-tech racer – the
ŠKODA Fabia R5 Combi – will be presented as an estate show car at
Wörthersee. The world premiere of the design concept will be held at the 34th
GTI Meeting at Wörthersee (13 to 16 May 2015). ŠKODA will also be presenting
the ŠKODA Fabia R5 alongside three other of the brand’s sports cars.

As many as 200,000 tuning and motorsport enthusiasts will be making the pilgrimage to
Wörthersee between 13 and 16 May to indulge in their passion for fast cars. This will be
ŠKODA’s sixth appearance at the GTI Meeting where the brand will be presenting five
sporty models this year.

ŠKODA’s designers have reinterpreted the Fabia R5 as an estate model to create the
ŠKODA Fabia R5 Combi show car. The green, white and black ŠKODA Fabia R5 Combi
will be driving onto the stage on 18-inch alloys. At the front, the powerful bumpers and
wide air intake testify to the car’s rallying ambitions. The wide contoured grille is finished
in back, just as the wing mirror covers. Flared mudguards and powerful doorsills
accentuate the model’s racy appearance. The rear sports a huge spoiler, as well as a
giant rear bumper, and the wide exhaust pipe is positioned in the centre.

Beneath the surface, the Fabia R5 features an ultramodern 1.6-litre turbo engine, all-
wheel-drive, sequential five-speed transmission and McPherson struts.

ŠKODA will additionally be showing the ‘original’ ŠKODA Fabia R5 at Wörthersee. Soon
after the model’s first very successful race, the new rally car will be driving to
Wörthersee. At the end of April, ŠKODA’s brand new racing car celebrated its dazzling
world premiere with a triumphant victory at the opening of this year’s Czech Rally
Championship. The car driven by the Asia-Pacific Champion Jan Kopecky (CZ) proved to
be both fast and reliable. The Fabia R5 is based on ŠKODA’s new series-production Fabia,
and is the successor to the Fabia Super 2000, which went down as the most successful
rally car in ŠKODA’s history.
